The Foínix Aftokratoría of Megistos is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Fainex with a fair hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, unlimited-speed roads, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 2.645 billion Mᴇgistians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of La Paix. The average income tax rate is 74.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mᴇgistia economy, worth 584 trillion Frᴇies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 220,903 Frᴇies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The only way to escape lengthy prison terms is in a body bag, libraries are bulldozed to make way for internet cafés, artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, and listless juries are assembled for the simplest of court cases. Crime is totally unknown. Megistos's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Phoenixi Orthodox.

Megistos is ranked 37,262nd in the world and 435th in 10000 Islands for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,244.53 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
